Norway has very strict gun laws. Didn't stop some nut-wad from murdering 80 plus people. There is no answer for this problem that will either make sense to some or work for others. Our government can't even guard our borders effectively and laws are gonna stop guns from streaming into the country? No form of prohibition will work in a free society. It's been tried and failed. Look at the miserable war on drugs. What a joke! There are more kids killed by drunk drivers in two weeks than this event but you don't see the government doing anything to stop it other than some silly vehicular homicide laws and a couple'a years in jail for those with a stupid lawyer. The most logical solution is a whole lot'a concealed weapon permits and teaching folks to use a gun. If we live with thousands killed annually by drunks we are gonna have to learn to live with some killed by retards with a gun.

Norway has had exactly one mass shooting of that magnitude ever. One case is not a trend. It's an outlier. There is no single policy that can stop "everything." Norway is still dramatically safer and has dramatically fewer of these kinds of tragedies. No form of prohibition works? Look man, I'm all for legalizing weed and whatnot, but there are some things that simply cannot be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. As dangerous as driving is -- and I wish people did it far less -- it is a mover of the economy, a basic form of transportation. I hardly think automatic weapons is a good parallel in terms of public goodness. The solution is more guns! You folks are CRA-ZY.
